From January 28 through February 3, Catholic Schools around the nation will begin the annual celebration of Catholic School Week. While each elementary and high school celebrates differently, there is one common denominator; the church counts on us to enrich the young people in our communities in a way that no other educational system can by teaching and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Catholic Schools provide an environment where faith is taught and lived out, where academic excellence is expected of all students, and where we commit to serving others in so many ways.
This year’s theme is “Catholic Schools, Learn, Serve, Lead, Succeed". At Bishop Brady we will be combining this special week with the Celebration of Winter Carnival sponsored by the Student Council. We have many things planned but we are very excited about two things in particular in our observance of Catholic School Week. The first is our Salute to Catholic Education at a Mass on Tuesday morning, January 30th at 10:50 in the morning and the second activity is a Fine Arts competition sponsored by the Campus Ministry Club TAU. Brady students will be encouraged to submit a Poem, an Essay, a Painting, Drawing, Pastel, Photograph or a personally composed song that emphasizes the Catholic School Week Theme.
This week marks a tradition in education that that has been an integral part of the development of young people actually pre-dating public education. As the Campus Minister and product of Catholic Education, a Catholic educator for over forty-six years, and as a parent of three children who attended Catholic Schools, I invite you to celebrate the importance of Bishop Brady and all Catholic Schools throughout the country not only this week but all year-long by your continued enthusiastic support and most especially through prayer.
Linda Fairbanks, Campus Minister
